If we’re talking about the new sound of Pinoy pop, SB19 are definitely behind it! The five-piece boy band which consists of John Paulo Nase (Sejun), Josh Cullen Santos (Josh), Stellevester Ajero (Stell), Felip Jhon Suson (Ken), and Justin De Dios (Justin) have all worked hard to achieve their current popularity among young fans.
Last year, free tickets to their “Get in the Zone” Manila show “sold out” in just three minutes!
SB19 was trained like K-pop idols with the help of ShowBT, their Korean talent management. That’s why we’re in awe of their fueled performances of original songs like “Tilaluha,” “Go Up,” and “Alab.”
Their fandom, A’TIN’, continues to grow with followers eager to watch the latest vlogs uploaded on the official SB19 YouTube channel. They’re also responsible for making SB19 trend on Twitter in the hopes that their idols would start a menpa or mention party. Who wouldn’t get excited if our faves start noticing us online?
Now that we have basked in SB19’s growing popularity, it’s time to get to know the members more (especially your biases!) with a list of fun facts we discovered:
Sejun knows how to cook!
Aside from being the SB19 leader, Sejun is also known as a master chef in the kitchen after revealing his secret egg recipe. LOL!
Josh doesn’t like swimming.
Even though he’s afraid of wading through high waters, Josh was still a good sport when he jumped in to join the SB19 swimming challenge. Nothing but respect for the kuya of the group!
Stell takes his skincare seriously.
For his nighttime skincare routine, Stell uses lots of products like toner, recovery night gel, acne gel, antibiotic cream, and lip balm. He also owns different face masks like sheet mask, peeling mask, and whitening mask. Talk about self-care!
Justin likes to play video games.
Any JoshTin fans out there? We can tell Josh and Justin are real BFFs. Not only do they tease and prank each other a lot, they also bond over video games like Dead By Daylight and Overwatch.
Ken is a big Daniel Caesar fan.
He even performed his idol’s song “Best Part” in their “Get in the Zone” concert last year. Check out his awesome guitar skills:
